LIQUIDITY ADJUSTMENT FACILITY

CASH RESERVE RATIO

A PERCENTAGE OF THE NETTIME AND DEMAND LIABILITIES HAVE TO BE STORED BY BANKS WITH RBI FORTNIGHTLY IN THE FORM OF CASH OUT OF WHICH THE BANKS EARN NOTHING

STATUTORY LIQUIDITY RATIO

AFTER DEPOSITING THE CRR, ANOTHER PERCENTAGE OF THE NET TIME AND DEMAND LIABILITIES HAVE TO BE KEPT ASIDE BY THE BANK IN THE BANK’S CHEST. THIS IS A STATUTORY REQUIREMENT AND IT HAS TO BE IN A LIQUID FORM WHICH BE CASH (but bank will earn nothing out of it); GOLD (the rates keep fluctuating and hence a bit risky) and GOVERNMENT SECURITIES (bank prefer this as they earn interest)

REPO RATE

the rate at which bank pays back a short term loan[ upto 14 days ] to RBI after  giving government security [non SLR] as a collateral.

REVERSE REPO

the rate a which RBI pays back a short term loan to a bank .this may happen when bank wants to create assests and is unavailable to do so because it is not getting any customers .it may also happen when bank is earning more by giving a short term loan to RBI instead of customers.

MARGINAL STANDING FACILITY

This is an overnight facility availed by a bank wherein it borrows from RBI by keeping the SLR govt security as a collateral as it is left with no other govt security to keep as a loan. The rate which the bank pays back to the RBI is known as a penal rate.

 

Difference between repo rate and marginal standing facility-

Repo rate Marginal standing facility
To commercial banks
Only to scheduled banks
For a short term need
Overnight need
Has a repurchase agreement of
securities (the bank has to pay the
principal amount and rate of interest in order to buy back its govt securities that it has kept with the RBI)
No (since it is a SLR requirement, there is no repurchase agreement. In case a bank is unable to pay the rate of interest and principal amount, RBI may have to shut it down)

BANK RATE

The rate at which bank pays back a long term loan to RBI wherein no collateral is provided. It is usually higher than the repo rate

LONG TERM REPO OPERATIONS

-RBI will provide a loan for a tie period of upto 1 to 3 years to banks
at the prevailing repo rate for which it will accept government securities with the same time period as the loan or a greater time period as a collateral.
– Banks will get long term funds at a lower rate.

– This means that the bank will be able to give loans to public and
organizations at a lesser rate

– OPEN MARKET OPERATIONS[OMO]

1. Open market operations is the sale and purchase of government securitize and treasury bills by RBI or the central bank of the country.
2. The main aim of the OMO is to optimal money supply in the economy and in system.
3. When the RBI wants to increase the money supply in the economy, it
purchases the government securities from the market and it sells securities to absorb the liquidity from the system.
4. RBI did the OMO by the commercial banks and it does not directly went to the public.
5. It is special and basic tool that RBI use for the maintenance of liquidity conditions through the year and minimize its HARMFUL EFFECT on the ROI and inflation rate .

MARET STABILIZATION SCHEME

During Demonitization the money supply increase  with the banks .RBI gave government securities with zero percent rate of interest to the banks to reduce this money supply so that inflation does not increase beyond an undesirable limit.

METHODS BY WHICH BANK CALCUATE THE RATE OF INTEREST which it applies upon customers :

1.benchmark prime lending rate -Upto  June 2010
dependent upon actual cost of funds .it was seen that bank used to subsidise corporate loans [EXAMPLE AMABANI] and to recover costs ,they used to increase ROI of small borrowers
2.BASE RATE [June 2010 -April 2016] minimum base ROI is fixed that is applied on customers .
based on 3 factors :
a] actual cost of funds
b] cost of Unallocated funds [like CRR and SLR]they cant be used for making assets]
c]return on net worth [NET INCOME -EXPENDIURE]money earned by properties ,assests ,branches ,investments IF its is less then ROI  will be high and vice versa .maximum limit is not here so it is problem
3. marginal cost of lending rate [April 16 onwards ]must be in official site
a[marginal cost of funds [to give last unit rupees how much money i need ]
b] negative carry on CRR [because bank does not take ROI in this from RBI]
C]OPERATIONAL COST [SPENDING on electricity , food ,rent ]
d]Tenure premium : shorter the term; shorter the risk; short will be  the ROI and opposite case for the long term.
4] External Benchmarking [October 19 onwards] : this is transprancy to to RBI by the   banks .banks were asked to fix their actual cost of funds and add it to an extrenal benchmark which could be any one of the following :
a[ repo rate .
b]3 months yield on treasury bill
c]6 months yield on a treasury bill
d]any other benchmark fixed by the financial benchmarks India Private Limited.
